Paris Hilton

Arrested for Cocaine

in Las Vegas

8/28/2010 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton was arrested for possession of cocaine Friday night in Las Vegas.

0717-paris-hilton-getty-bn-creditAccording to police, Paris was the passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over outside the Wynn Hotel. The driver was arrested for DUI (drug-related, not alcohol) and when cops searched Hilton, they found her in possession of a controlled substance. 

Police say tests revealed the substance to be cocaine. 

She was arrested and released on her own recognizance.

UPDATE: Paris' boyfriend, Cy Waits, was arrested as well. He was booked on a charge of DUI.

UPDATE: Sgt. John Sheahan told the AP that during the arrest, Hilton asked to go inside the Wynn hotel for privacy. At that time, Sheahan said, Hilton pulled out a tube of lip balm and "a bindle of cocaine in a plastic bag came out of her purse" in plain view of police in the room. Another officer characterized it as a "small amount."

Bet this gets thrown out. They'll probably say there was no probable cause to search her.

Also, how does one go about getting arrested for cocaine possession and get released in a few hours?

Oh wait, it's Paris Hilton. To be fair, if it was a black guy, he would still be there.

Hmmm, she must have an album, movie, or TV show coming out soon. She has been getting a lot of press lately, after being out of the limelight for a long (for her at least) time. Heck, maybe she is just tired of being outattentionwhored by LiLo.
